Should we replace packaging for this bread?
Hooray for NatureFlex, a new biodegradable packaging material designed for covering confectionery products. There is an increase in demand for this product on the market as more companies are getting environment conscious. Or is it due to consumer demand?
The dear old supermarkets like Sainbury's and Tesco's are forced to buy more of this product as we the consumers get more environment conscious. We still want to keep the packaging on our food but we do not want to deal with the environmental cost of all these unnecessary packaging.

I sure hope there will be increased use of more biodegradable material. But my concern is the increase in cost of our food products because the cost of packaging is passed on to the consumers. Why should we encourage the use of NatureFlex if the very reason for packaging those food products that we purchase are totally redundant?
